My top up system is hang on the side trough with a float valve, height adjusted for the aquarium level, and connected to the aquarium with a 6mm pvc pipe siphon, the ball valve is connected to my RO output.
As I have decided to change the aquarium into a CO2 dosed and fertilised one, I have built a 3” fertiliser tube to be put into the top up trough. It is merely a ½” plastic pipe with a lot of holes, plugged at one end and a rubber bung on the other. The side of the entire tube is covered with the fabric of an old nylon socks. I intend to just fill it up with the fertiliser dose and drop it into the trough of the top up system and adjust the quantity of fertilizers by observation.
As there is no current affecting the material inside the F-tube, I expect it would work.
If you have a choice, you have a problem, till you elect your choice. No choice, no problem, only consequences, learn to live with them.
